Mad Housers Hut, 1987
This is a Project. It was designed by Mad Housers volunteers. It is dated 1987. Its medium is lumber (1×6 and 2×4 studs), plywood (3/8” and 5/8”), nails (16 penny, 8 penny, finishing, roofing), roll roofing, plastic and/or screen for windows, silver sheet insulation, paint, caulk, metal flashing, stove pipe, cinderblocks, stove, 55-gallon steel dr.
Mad Housers was started by a group of Georgia Tech architecture students to build free shelter for Atlanta’s homeless. Each hut has a locking door for security, a loft for sleeping and storage, and a wood-burning stove. The prefabricated huts can be erected quickly, and are built on stable sites where it is not likely to be torn down. The huts are intended as emergency shelters, with the idea that people with a stable place to live are more capable of finding other resources to help themselves.
